Looking for an RX 6800 XT graphics card? How about a Solidigm P41 Plus 512GB SSD? And to top it off, Starfield? Well, you’re in luck! Right now, there’s a Newegg bundle that offers all three items for just $486 when you use the code EEGCWA827 during checkout.
Here are the links you’ll need:
Before we dive in, let’s quickly go over why you would want these components. Let’s start with the graphics card…
The RX 6800 XT is the predecessor to the recently released RX 7800 XT. These two GPUs offer very similar performance, surprisingly so. In fact, according to Eurogamer’s testing, the performance difference between the two cards is often within a five percent margin at 1440p resolution in games like Cyberpunk 2077, Forza Motorsport 5, F1 22, and Returnal. The RX 6800 XT is currently priced around $485, and it’s expected to drop even further once the RX 7800 XT becomes available. So, if the RX 6800 XT is more than 10 percent cheaper than the RX 7800 XT, it becomes a fantastic value option, especially when you consider that it comes bundled with a free SSD.
Now, let’s talk about the SSD. The P41 Plus is a drive that comes from Intel’s old SSD manufacturer, now operating under its own brand, SK Hynix. Despite being a QLC model without a DRAM cache, this drive offers impressive random read/write speeds, with up to 390K IOPS reads and up to 540K IOPS writes. It also boasts a longevity rating of 200TBW, which is quite good.
And finally, we have Starfield. It’s a wickedly fun game, and getting it included in this bundle is definitely a nice bonus (I can’t wait to play it myself after finishing this article!).
Remember, to enjoy the discounted price, you need to add both products to your cart and apply the code. If you prefer, you can also opt for the 1TB version of the drive.
Thank you for joining me, and I’ll see you again next week!
